Seniors, models, musicians... oh my, oh, and a few corporate headshots, a household move, and all sorts of fun.

Just realized today I've been so busy with concerts and personal stuff (like moving into a new apartment) that I hadn't updated the blog in quite a bit.

I just got back from a 2600 mile driving trip from LA to Vancouver. It's not 2600 miles in a straight line... i just took the, uh, scenic route, saw friends and had a great time.

After the trip is when I moved, at the same time squeezing in a couple senior shoots, a couple pro shoots (professional headshots) and sundry other goodies.

I'm in photo editing craziness now...  I'll post more and some photos when I get caught up some!

review: Direct from Ireland, 2Duos and Cara hold a Celtic throw-down by two bands but seven tight friends.

2Duos and Cara, Stargazers, 8/27/2010, by butch leitz

I have been to Stargazers on nights when there was a cream-of-the-crop touring band when the house wasn't packed... and to shows like this one where I wasn't sure how many people would show up and I ended up almost not being able to find a parking space!

This was a fun show, these musicians who are excellent in their own rights made great music together, are friends "in real life" - and it shows. Alot of harmony on and off the stage, laughter, and a really "nice" time (in the good sense).

See my review and more photos here.

review: Laughing and great music with Liv Taylor

Liv Taylor, Stargazers, 8/20/2010, by butch leitz

I had a great time talking to Liv before the show at Stargazers and really got a feel for him. When the warm up act was playing we talked a little more prior to him going on (he didn't have on the bow-tie at that point... not sure why he added that affectation).

His show was fun, he had the audience laughing over stories, and the way he'd sing chord changes and bridges from one song to the next. He has an amazing depth and repetoire, and the Taylor vocals he shares with his bother James (who I had seen a few weeks earlier in Denver with Carole King) were in mostly fine form (albeit he admitedly wasn't hitting some of the high notes in the some of the songs the way he wanted. But he was endearing about it, so it didn't matter to the audience one bit).

Please see my review and more photos here.
